Vessel sinks have become a hugely popular option for both guest bathrooms and master suites. But unlike most traditional sinks, upgrading to a vessel sink isn’t a simple one-to-one swap; it’s often a much more involved installation, a more extensive renovation, and results in a few subtle changes that it can be easy to overlook. HomeThangs.com has introduced a simple guide to some of the challenges of swapping to a vessel sink, as well as the most important differences to be aware of.
First and foremost, it’s impossible to upgrade to a vessel sink without also replacing the vanity top. The reason for this is simple: because vessel sinks sit on top of the vanity rather than nesting inside or underneath the vanity top, the opening in the vanity top should only be large enough to accommodate the plumbing, not the whole sink. The drillings for the faucet also typically need to be different. Most vessel sinks use a tall, post style faucet rather than the more conventional three-hole centerset layout, because they’re easier to access with an above-counter sink. Countertop aside, vessel sinks are quite DIY friendly, and even allow for better and more intuitive storage space inside the cabinet itself.
